Patience Beard is a scholarship Division 1 Cheerleader at the University of Arkansas, but isn’t like other women in her situation. Patience lives her life with a prosthetic leg.
Not only is Patience inspirational because of what she has accomplished as a cheerleader, with an obvious disadvantage, but because she doesn’t view herself has “different.”
I love Patience’s outlook on life. It makes me re-think how to view challenges I face in the new year. From now on, when I face something that seems like a disadvantage, I’m going to look for reasons it can be an asset to me.
